Strike Action - Wednesday 5th July & Friday 7th July - Years 1 & 2

You will find below new work for your child to complete at home on the day of strike action. The purpose of this is to allow your child to continue their learning at home and also to ease some of the inconvenience faced by parents.

Year 1 parents - there is no new work for children to complete on these days, as teachers have exercised their legal right not to set any work in advance. You will find listed work from a previous round of strike action in March.

Please do not send any completed work in to school (via e-mail or in person) for marking, as teachers who have chosen to strike on this day will not be marking such work.


Maths 1 – WALT add equal groups

This week we have been adding equal groups of 2s, 5s and 10s. Use the images (in document below) to write repeated addition number sentences. There is an example to help you. There is no need to print this, just write the repeated addition sentence for each one.

WALT add equal groups

If you would like to explore this further, you could use objects around your house to show equal groups. You could use blocks, Lego or cereal.

RSHE – WALT know how to use money

We have been learning about money in RSHE. Last week we learnt where money comes from and how we earn money. This week we are thinking about how we use money.

Work through each task.

In the first one, discuss what you would buy if you had £2.

-          Can you buy all of the items?

-          What would you buy for each of the scenarios? Can you buy this with £2?

In the second task, guess what the people have bought based on the receipt. Can you think of different situations where you might buy these items?

In the third task, think about how we can buy something if we don’t have enough money. Discuss how we can save money. Where can I put my money to save it?

If you would like to explore this further, can you draw a picture of spending money and saving money?

WALT create an ideal environment for woodlice and prove that this is a successful habitat

This year, we have looked at different animals their habitats and what they like to eat. In our lesson this week, we are looking at designing an environment for woodlice and show that it is successful.

Have a look around your garden and around your house. Are there any places where woodlice live? What do they need in order to survive? How do they like to live?

Your task is to design a woodlice house – you need to think about what they need to survive and what it might like to eat. Try to be creative with your presentation using a variety of different techniques (photographs/pictures, drawings, diagrams, writing). Please see the factsheet for help with understanding of the needs and requirements of woodlice.
